At the webpage of Dans & Toner the following, among other things, is written about Twisted:

"By giving another focus to these mundane things they may become art (the Found Art principle). In the production we play with this principle and tell small stories through music, dance, film, text and song. Everything is turned upside down - or twisted, as one can call it. Twisted is a playful and humorous production to experience in the now.... perhaps also starting an art debate at the school.

The audience is included in the action of the performance. The musician interviews some of the pupils when arriving the school, on the topic of their ideas about one of the objects. This is recorded and integrated in the performance. Some pupils also take part directly in the performance, creating their own art through solving a simple assignment."

Twisted has been performed more than 50 on tour in the municipalities of Sandefjord, Nøtterøy, Lardal, Horten, Re and Svelvik.

Press coverage

Flemming Hofmann Tveitan, date unknown, Sandefjords Blad [Sandefjord]:

"Enchanted the children with dance and tones. The artists more or less mesmerised the children with a very consciously planned and masterfully performed performance."
